Multivisceral Tx is unlike any other transplant and the number of viscera Tx varies on case-by-case basis and thus number of anastomoses to be evaluated varies.
Radiology plays a key role in demonstrating complex pre- and post-op anatomy in a manner that is convincing to the surgeons (MPR, VRT, MIPs, Angios)
IR plays a pivotal role in maintaining ‘status-quo’, improve their likelihood of Tx and managing vascular and biliary complications
Anything that needs to be fixed, consider IR referral…..no matter how complex it may be……
